Across the USA with Bob and Marge travel blog

Left Winnemucca, Nevada about 8:30 am arrived at 12:30 but the time changed about 3 miles out of West Wendover to mountain time so it was 1:30. Driving flat valleys some climbing in the mountains to 6,000 ft. This is desert area you see a lot of sage brush not much trees. As we approached West Wendover beautiful view of valley (sorry we missed the look out and ok since I left the camera how stupid was that). West Wendover has gambling casinos and is famous for the Bonneville Salt Flats for setting time speed records with motorcycles and vehicles. Also listed Curvature of the Earth, transcontinental telephone line, northwestern pacific railroad feather rive route. Since were here only 1 night we can't tell anymore about these interesting facts. News from home was interesting this morning as the Bay Area got a 6.0 wake up call earthquake! Novato seemed to be ok and our home is ok. West Wendover is right on the state line of Nevada and Utah. Until next time! bob and marge
